Braving winds and frigid 13-degree weather to create this winter woods styled shoot, Britani Edwards Photography and a team of talented creatives designed an outdoor elopement with a moody color palette of burgundy, white and green. The golf course, blanketed in white and surrounded by snow-covered pines and frozen lakes, created the perfect backdrop for the scene.
A winter woods styled shoot in Mount Clare, WV
A beautiful, burgundy sequin gown created a princess feel you often see in “enchanted” or “fairytale” inspired weddings and it certainly gave that impression for this shoot. We balanced the bride's look with soft curls and a snow-covered pine and pepper berries floral crown. Makeup was dark tones to reflect that of the forest and accented with a gorgeous red bold lip. She holds the most beautiful bouquet filled with hydrangea, forever young roses, white spray roses, tulips, poppy pods, Carolina sapphire, cedar, ilex berries, pepper berries and pine cones. A fur shawl is the ultimate winter wedding accessory, and we love how it's styled among the elegant woodsy details. She completed the look with elegant hand made jewelry from local designer, ‘Adorn by June'. Slightly off the beaten path, we have the most romantic tablescape setup. Starting with a farmhouse table and cross back wooden chairs. The center of the table included lush greenery, while tapered candles in copper candle holders created ambiance. Gold flatware adds something extra to the table, elegant chargers with gold tones. Crystal glassware filled with champagne and berries adds to the romance and color at the table. Gold foil menus and name cards add elegant detail to the table. The cake was truly the epitome of a winter wedding cake – a beautiful naked cake with delicate white buttercream surrounded with berries, pine cones and greens. – Britani
